Taste of the Sahara in Tyrone!
by Aidy  3 Apr 2014
It was a very murky day as I returned to Tyrone from working in Belfast, with a thick haze obscuring everything, but I took a chance and decided to visit Slievemore anyway. I left the A5, taking the Garvaghy Bridge Road briefly, before turning off on to the Shantavny Road, then the Fallaghearn Raod, where I parked near the windfarm. The summit was Southeast of here, only twenty minutes or so away across admittedly very boggy ground. The summit itself is near a small mound which can be seen in the bottom right of the photograph. The haze was presumably caused by the fine sand and dust particles from the Sahara Desert, borne by the wind to our shores, The gloom was beginning to clear a little by the time I reached the top, although only enough to reveal the closer views.

I know from driving round this area in the past, that on a nice day there are magnificent views to be had over the undulating countryside, with rolling fields and hedgerows spread over the attractive drumlin landscape. I have photos from a nearby spot on a clear day where the Mournes can plainly be seen on the horizon. Today, thanks to the Sahara, anything beyond a few hundred metres was lost in the haze. Everything looked bleak, and from the summit, the immediate landscape did not look attractive, seeming to be dominated by quarries and wasteland. Maybe on a better day the hill would reveal its charms. Perhaps I should have waited, as by the time I was back in west Tyrone, an hour later, it was a beautiful sunny day. The concrete blocks marking the top seem to be scattered now, by someone offended by their lack of asthetics maybe? If you are visiting, be careful where you put your feet, as I almost walked into a 4 or 5 feet deep ditch. It was only about a foot and half wide, and was almost hidden by the heather. You could easily end up with a broken leg - and at the bottom of a ditch! Its also a very short walk, so I put on the wellies rather than the boots, and was glad I did - very wet.
